Our activities in Cameroon
The Association of Volunteers Dokita, present and active in Cameroon since 1970 in close collaboration with the missionaries of the Congregation of the Sons of the Immaculate Conception, has fielded several initiatives to foster support and development, placing its focus in particular on the socially weak. It started with a project for the health care and social rehabilitation of patients with leprosy, once numerous and marginalized by the social context, then it began working hard for disabled people (children and adults) for their physical rehabilitation and their social reintegration; it also worked for the prevention and treatment of endemic diseases (malaria, TBC, AIDS, etc..), it has built many schools for primary and secondary schooling and has promoted a project the for protection and the self development of pygmies insofar as an ethnic minority.
Finally, in view of the increasing phenomenon of children at risk, two years ago a project was launched to assist children at risk in psycho-physical-social terms. Located in the city of Yaoundé, this project seeks to defend their basic rights (food, health, education) and thereby help improve their situation in life and generate attention and reaction on the part of public authorities, individuals and volunteers interested in this ever spreading social phenomenon.
